my scandinavian home: A cosy weatherboard cottage interior

A cosy weatherboard cottage interior

Friday, 14 November 2014

The final home tour of the week always needs to be fabulous. I search in particular for somewhere that warms the heart, somewhere perhaps where you could see yourself spending the weekend. And this home hits the mark. Spotted over at blog extraordinaire Design Sponge, the 1890's weatherboard cottage in Queensland, Australian is home of photographer and stylist Kara Rosenlund and her husband. It's crammed with beautiful treasures collected over the years from all their travels as well as local vintage finds. Kara takes a lot of her inspiration from nature and you can seen this in the autumnal colours and mix of browns and whites. Could you spend your weekend here?!

Photography and styling by Kara Rosenlund via Design Sponge with thanks. 

Oh so lovely. What a home! 

I've actually shown Kara's home before here. Can you believe it's the same home? It looks completely different (beautiful in another way) which just goes to show how you can transform a home! 

Some of the items such as the horse and outback print can be found in Kara's shop (don't miss her limited edition sea print too - so stunning!).

You can see more images and read more about Kara's home here

This is the second brown and white themed home this week (other one here, in case you missed it!). What a beautiful combination. 

And how cute is this autumn outfit (found in the archives while I was looking for inspiration)?! 

Don't forget to pop back tomorrow to enter my weekend give-away! 


  1. You're definitely making me fall in love with brown and white! :)

  2. What a home, seriously!! A collector's den? Beautifully rustic!

  3. Such a gorgeous home! I absolutely love the kitchen, the colours are incredible!

  4. I think the design and forms of everything here are wonderful. But as striking as the photos are, I think if I were living in the space I'd go a little nuts. I really need more color than white and shades of brown. It takes some searching to find colorful Scandinavian design products. But, this really is lovely in many ways.

  5. This is my dream home! Seriously, the brown and white combination makes the space so warm and cozy. But I have a question: where to get such amazing "local vintage finds"? In antique stores? On garage sales? I'm currently finishing the interior of my first real home and I would love to have some elements like the painting next to the candles but I know only the pricey side of buying antiques here in Vancouver. Please, share some tricks (if there are any) :)
